In some situations, the SPTRB will determine it necessary to
enter into agreements with individuals related to disciplinary matters. These agreements are in addition to (and not in lieu of) the standard
disciplinary process and are typically protective in nature.
Rather than seek a temporary suspension of a teacher’s
certificate from the courts, a more efficient means of achieving the same
result is for the teacher to formally agree to cease certain activities. Some circumstances require making the agreement and its contents available to
the public to inform the public and to protect the public interest.
